Exercise Your Personal Reactions to a Card

Choose any card from the tarot deck. Look at it carefully and then write down your response. It doesn't matter if you are already familiar with this card and know its meanings. Consider whatever comes to mind to be your personal reaction. Some elements to think about are:

What feeling do I sense in the card scene?*

What feeling do I sense in myself when I see this card?*

Am I attracted, repelled or neutral about this card?

What aspect of my life comes to mind when I see this card?

Does this card remind me of someone?

What details seem important in this card, and why?

*These two feelings may be the same or different.

You may not feel any reaction to the card, or perhaps just a mild one. Try to notice any quick thought, feeling or image that comes to mind, no matter how slight.
